Although I bemoan the fact that we don’t have a backyard apple tree here in mid-September, my limequat tree that is full of tiny limes makes up for it. Can’t make cocktails out of apples, eh?

Traditional daiquiris are made from three simple ingredients: rum, lime, and a sweetener. They are not suppose to be frozen, blended, or come in florescent colors, but that’s how they’re known today. To make an old-school daiquiri, just throw a few ingredients in a cocktail shaker with some ice, and you’ve got yourself a good happy hour drink.

Ingredients (makes one drink):

1 1/2 jigger white rum
1 jigger simple syrup
1 jigger lime juice


Place all ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake well, and pour into a chilled glass. If you like it more tart, you can add a little more lime juice. If you like it sweeter, add a splash more of the simple syrup. Garnish with lime slices.

It’s Friday, people. Go out and enjoy!
